    I need your guys's help

    Hey yall. I git a redcat volcano s30. Having an issue with the throttle. The metal cylindrical peice/slide for the carb keeps getting stuck. I've tried almost everything I can think of. The plastic arm will move but not the slide for the throttle. Can someone help me so I can run this thing good?
